Those Places Thursday - The House That Caused the Fuss

This is the house that cause all the fuss with my grandfather and his siblings in my previous post.  It's still standing in Scranton, Pennsylvania.  Knowing that it was Adam and Jadwiga's house, I wish it was still in the family.  They were the first immigrants in that line so it is meaningful to me.  If nothing else, I wish I could see inside it, although I'm sure it's changed.

I wish I had a better picture.  I was sure the picture that I had wasn't this bad, but the one I'm looking for may be at home on my backup drive.  I guess I'll check again after spring break when I get home!


  1. Do you know the address? Try google maps, you might be able to see it today?

  2. Actually I do (I have to dig it up though when I get home). I also had taken a picture of it about 5 or so years ago which I believe is on my backup drive at home. I'll have to add them when I get home, but I didn't think of Google. That would be cool!

  3. When was the house built? From the outside I would say 1870s - 1880s. Perhaps the historical society in the area has an old photograph of the home. It reminds me of a number of homes I've seen in photos from my father's side of the family in New Britain, CT.
